Description

Enjoy beautiful views of the creek, salt marsh, and sunsets from Creekside Captains Retreat, a uniquely built vacation home which is set back only 5 feet from Horsepen Creek. This one of a kind home was built to mimic the inside of a ship and offers many special touches from the woodwork to the doors, high ceilings, and decking. The builder of the home was a locally based sea captain who piloted vessels around the world and wanted a tranquil retreat back home. Guests will enjoy the feel of almost floating above the creek while enjoying views of the water, fish, and sea birds. A great bonus is the detached screened porch on the ground level right on the waterline. This space is set-up perfectly for relaxation - enjoy drinks, dinner, a good book, all while observing the wildlife enjoying the salt marshes. There is even a gas grill right off the screened porch for cookouts, a fishing platform and a hot/cold outdoor shower.

Creekside Captains Retreat offers a perfect setting for small family vacations or romantic couples getaways on Tybee Island. Beautiful oak flooring throughout the living spaces and guest bedroom. The living room includes a sleeper sofa along with a flat screen TV and great views of the marsh and sunsets. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dishwasher. There is also a storage room available to place your beach gear and bikes. The bathroom is accessible from both the kitchen and master and offers a walk-in shower with a sauna-like feel as well as an all-in-one washer/dryer. The master features vaulted ceilings and lots of windows that really take advantage of the setting. It is well furnished with a King bed and a flat screen TV. The guest bedroom offers 2 Twin size beds and TV. The deck overlooking the marsh is accessible from both bedrooms.

Don't miss a chance to experience Tybee Island in this special setting! This property is perfect for nature and animal lovers, as well as bird watchers. Guests will love the fantastic views from every angle! Enjoy the pristine marsh views from the privacy of the home, and take in the sunsets from the private deck over the marsh.

Creekside Captains Retreat includes parking for 2 cars. Bringing a boat or kayak trailer? Call for approval. Wireless Internet is available for guest use. This home is not pet-friendly.

PLEASE NOTE: Creekside Captains Retreat is located on the same property as Creekside Livin which is a 5 bedroom, 2 bath home.

I would like to start off by saying that we loved the Creekside Cabin and love Tybee Island! My children and I traveled from Ohio by plane to do what many will never have to do. I lost my 16 year old daughter Olivia in a car accident on January 17, 2017, our hearts are broken and we needed a vacation terribly. In 2014 Olivia and I took a road trip to Florida and we ended up in Tybee somehow, we both loved it here so this was the spot that I wanted my children and I to be at on the 6 month mark of her passing. In our picture I shared with you we are wearing our Olivia shirts that our community had made when she passed and we are standing on the beach (the exact spot her and I went to) on the 7th at 2:25, exactly 6 months. This place has helped us in our healing process and we have felt so close to her here. I have spent many hours out on the patio, which has been so helpful in spiritually and mentally healing me. My little family has much enjoyed our stay here and can't wait to come back! Thank you!

This place was awesome!!!! SO relaxing!!! Can't wait to book our next trip here!! The island was like a step back in time away from the hustle and bustle. Couldn't afford to live here though. The seafood restarants would kill us!! $$$$

We had a relaxing stay at Creekside Captains Retreat for our 2nd anniversary. We love Tybee and come every year for the last 8 years and even got married on the island! Loved our little getaway!

We really enjoyed our stay at Captains Retreat. The house was very cozy and comfortable. I would recommend adding some patio furniture on the balcony so people can take advantage of the beautiful view. Other than that, we were very satisfied with our visit!

Place was really unique and perfect for a small family. Interior was really cozy. Exterior looked like it was not quite finished which was odd. Great little place in a fantastic location!

Great property with a wonderful view! The only draw back to our stay was not being able to completely use the deck. We would love to come back to Tybee again.

We had a great time and very lovely place to stay. Each morning we watched the birds and even had a family of raccoons playing on the deck.
